Re: Poland on Tropo 17 October 2017

Was it received on Sony XDR? It sounds like it. Great catch. I had mine on a different laptop. I need to find it first :) Hi Zach. No it was received on the RBRX Encore, which is a DSP-based receiver with adaptive noise reduction like the XDR. It was set up to make the most of very weak signals. I ...

Re: VG Tropo conditions in France...

Yes, these are few exceptions. "Radio Orient" boradcasts news in arabic from its lebanese sister station, and "Radio Alfa" broadcasts also shows in portuguese in addition to French ones, because of the numerous portugese people who live in Paris. I didn't know that "Radio Orient" broadcasts its leb...

Re: VG Tropo conditions in France...

As I know there is no FM station in France which broadcasts in arabic (*). Our two major Arabic-themed stations, "Beur FM" and "France Maghreb" are in french. I believe that your signal could be from Maghreb, which would be a nice tropo catch ! (*) In France, only French or regional-spoken language...

97.4 sounds like it has PR 3 now, as web stream with a Polish alternative rock song. It is VERY weak though!

Re: Poland on Tropo 17 October 2017

Very nice Zach :P

107.9 got replaced by Einslive shortly after that earlier post but they were having the phone-in followed by a ballad-type song, as web stream before QRM from Einslive began to take over.

Re: VG Tropo conditions in France...

Yes France is enhanced very well here with big signals from the likes of Brest, Rennes and Caen. It has been going down to Bayonne with France Bleu Gascogne in around lunch time on 100.5.

As I type this there is a very weak Euskadi Irratia on 88.9 so Spain is making it in now.

Re: dx tips

Seemed to be good to Mid West at 0600 in the Cabades badlands. 700 WLW and 760 WJR both reasonable. John - your music station on 830 was coming in well as well. I recorded an ID but just can't make it out besides the "50,000 watts of power". Seems as though I can't attach a mp3 file here. I'll ping...

Tropo logs 3-4th October 2017

Virtually all France during this tropo, with Hornisgrinde being the only German tx logged. The duct at best extended all the way down to the Perpignan/Pic Neulos transmitter right by the French/Spanish border. Recordings from this tropo can be found here: https://app.box.com/s/9nnr200afh0nxt2ffc7g86...
